Clean School Bus Rebates: Online Rebate Forms
- Clean School Bus
The Clean School Bus Rebate Program utilizes an applicant dashboard for submission of information to EPA. From the dashboard an applicant organization can create, edit and submit forms, check the status of all forms they have submitted, see when the form was last updated and by whom, and view information that was submitted on a form.
Selected rebate applications will also use the dashboard to submit Payment Request Forms and Close Out Forms. You will need to maintain an active SAM.gov registration to access the online rebate forms.
Clean School Bus Rebate Application Form
Note: The 2023 CSB Rebate Program Applications is CLOSED.
This form is used by applicants to apply to the rebate program. Once applications are submitted to EPA, EPA utilizes a selection process that is outlined in Sections 2 and 6 of the 2023 Clean School Bus (CSB) Rebate Program Guide (pdf) (1.2 MB, September 2023, EPA-420-B-23-032) and reviews the applications. If an application is awarded for funding, a Payment Request Form needs to be completed (see section below).
Go to Clean School Bus Rebates: Online Application Forms page for more information on the application form and to access the applicant dashboard.
Note: If an entity other than the school district is applying on behalf of that school district, the SAM.gov-registered entity that is listed on the application as the primary applicant will be the same entity that will receive the funds if selected. EPA can only provide funds to the SAM.gov-registered entity that is listed as the primary applicant on the application.
If selected for funding, EPA can only disburse funds to the SAM.gov entity included in the rebate application; selectees are responsible for ensuring their SAM.gov account remains up-to-date and all information in the SAM.gov account, including points of contact and bank account details, is accurate.
